1700 E 650 N, Veedersburg, IN

This Stately Early American Farm House has been occupied by the family members of the original builder for 130 yrs. Truly a Fountain County "Gem" sitting on a Large 2.17 Acre lot. Located just minutes from both Lafayette and Crawfordsville. Extremely well constructed and was one of the finest homes of this entire area in 1880 when it was built.

    Fascinating for how unaltered it is, except for the florescent fixture near the stairs. I think the trough-like thing may be a small cistern.

    I was informed by someone the house burned down. Looked up the local fire department and although hazy there are photos on their Facebook page, link. The fire was set. Very sad.

      Kelly… I just looked at the pictures. Yes they’re very hazy. I’m completely appalled at the fact that they would pretty much just give history the middle finger like that. Sorry for being blunt but you see it so much in today’s world that people don’t care about preserving the past. The price the couple was asking for the house and it’s property wasn’t bad. It was just the question of what would it cost to renovate that had us concerned which led to us to decide not to purchase it. If only the walls could’ve had their time to say some final words.

        Yes, it does suck that probably some kids torched the place for fun. Looked to be in a nice location and would have been fabulous again if given the chance. Thanks for letting me know about it. I had actually just looked at this last week, trying to find more info about it, didn’t expect it to have burned down.
